The evil spirit of the serpent called ‘Cockatrice’

‘They hatch cockatrice’ eggs, and weave the spider’s web: he that eateth of their eggs dieth, and that which is crushed breaketh out into a viper.
They hatch deadly snakes and weave spiders’ webs. Whoever falls into their webs will die, and there’s danger even in getting near them’ (Is 59:5, KJ, NLT)
In Isaiah 59 we see a list of sins that are described as the result of the spiritual attack of the ‘snake’ evil spirit. In King James translation it is called ‘cockatrice’. This is a legendary, spiritual, giant snake that was hatched by a reptile from a cock’s egg. It kills its victim by hypnosis and strangulation. The result of this evil spirit on the land is an increase of sins, lies, deceptions, violence, ignorance, weakness, confusion, depression, rebellion and treachery. All these are coming like a flood of evil attacks. Confront and defeat! Take over and occupy! Plant and harvest righteousness!
In the book of Revelation there is a serpent that vomits water like a flood to destroy the baby boy, Jesus Christ. The attack of the serpent spirit is a proof that he is panicking knowing that ‘his time is short’ (Rev 12).
The attack of Jezebel should be an encouragement to us. She knows that her time of deception, of oppression is coming to a close. She knows that our victory is close, at the very door. The flood of attacks is a sign of her madness and defeat.
But the wonderful promise is that the Spirit of the Lord will stop that flood and people will fear the name of the Lord. The attack of the serpent is the result of exposing the territorial spirits before revival comes in the land. The greater the attack, the more I rejoice! The devil is a failure and there is no redemption for him.
This land has suffered enough! This is the Year of Jubilee when the true worshippers shall be rewarded by their Lord!
What an encouragement!
Remember: at the name of Jesus, every knee must bow and every tongue shall confess that He is the Lord!
